Nehemiah Bennett drew this map of Sharon for Boston Magazine. The map shows the locations of taverns, a meetinghouse, ponds, swamps, hills, meadows, brooks, town lines, and roads. The scale of the map is two inches to the mile. Bennett wrote the names of the towns bordering Sharon toward the edges of the map--Dedham to the north, Foxborough to the west, Easton to the south, and Stoughton to the east.
